Jury No-Shows Tell Judge Why They Weren’t There

Four people appeared before Judge David Cybulski in 15th Judicial District Court, Wednesday, Sept. 24, ordered to show cause why they didn’t show up for jury duty.
They were among the 60 people who had been called for jury selection for a scheduled trial for Malinda Bibb, Thursday, Aug. 14. Too few showed up and Cybulski declared a mistrial.
A new trial for Bibb has been scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 16.
Numerous others who had been called for the same jury pool could not be located.
Cybulski did not fine any of the four people but ordered them to fill out the questionnaires that are required of all perspective jurors and to furnish current addresses.
Some said they didn’t receive the letter and one said he forgot.
People who are excused by the court for cause may have to serve jury duty another time.
Jury pools are chosen randomly from voter, driver’s license and state identification card lists.
Montana code allows for a maximum fine of $50 for people who are summonsed for jury duty who willfully [and not excused by the court] fail to show up.
The jurisdiction of state courts does not include tribal members, but tribal members are called for district court jury duty.
